Figure 494. The Advanced (File) sectionThe Advanced section lets you specify auto-save, file versioning and other project file settings.The Advanced section contains the following settings:
Auto-save Every “N” Minutes or “N” Changes. Choose how many minutes or edits between automatic saves.
Enable Versioning of Project (.cwp) Files. Checking this check box causes SONAR to save successive versions of a project with the date the project was saved in the file name. The most recent version has no date in the name.
Number of versions to keep. If you enable the versioning option, you can use this field to choose how many versions to keep. When the maximum number of files is reached, the oldest file is deleted.
Create Default Drum Map for Non-SONAR Files. This option ensures that when you load a Standard MIDI File, you won’t have to create a drum map from scratch—SONAR creates a basic one for you.
Allow Only One Open Project at a Time. If you check this check box, when you open a new project SONAR will close any project that is already open and ask if you want to save any changes.
Ask before Sending System Exclusive (When Opening Projects). If you check this option and then open a project that contains sysx data, SONAR asks you before sending the sysx data.
On Startup Load Normal Template. This option lets you leave the Use Per-Project Audio Folders option checked, but doesn’t ask you to choose an audio folder every time you open a new project. While you record audio into the new project, the audio data is stored in the global audio folder until you save the file, at which point you can choose to create a PPA folder, or retain the audio in the Global audio folder.
Always Use Offline Help. This option tells SONAR to always use the installed version of the Help (SONAR.chm). When this options is disabled, SONAR will load the latest online HTML help in your default web browser.
